Description

Gujari Todi is a very common morning rag in Todi That.  There are a number of popular film songs in Gujari Todi, including Ik Tha Bachapan.

There are fundamental differences between Mian Ki Todi and Gujari Todi.  Where Mian-ki-Todi has a Pa that is very weak, Gujari Todi has no Pa at all, therefore they sound very similar.  The absence of Pa makes this rag shadav - shadav jati.  As is typical of the vadi / samvadi theory there are differences of opinion concerning the vadi and samvadi; Dha, Ga, and Re have variously been declared to occupy these positions.
